Guided Reading: Neighborhood & Community
To keep with the theme of making the world a better place and showing kindness to everyone, we read stories that had to do with neighborhoods and communities. We discussed who neighbors are and, how a community can come together to make their neighborhood a nice place to live.
Some strategies we focused on were retelling the story and identifying key details.
Your child used the text and illustrations of the story, text and photographs of the selection for reference.

Beginning, Middle, and End of a Story
- Identifying the most important event from the beginning, middle and end of the story helps a reader understand how organization, sequence, and plot make a good story.
The Beginning: Your child learned that the beginning is where the writer captures the reader’s attention, either with a great opening line, a detailed description of the character or setting, or a glimpse into the topic, problem, or theme of the story.
The middle: The middle explains the topic, gives important key details, and holds the reader’s attention, but most importantly it is where we reach the turning point of the story.
The end: Your child learned that the end is where the story comes to a close, it is the conclusion and solution to the problem. It is where the character learns a lesson or comes to terms with the events of what happened.
Words of the week - be & but
- This week, we reviewed "a word families" and focused on the -ad word family. Your child practiced spelling and building these words by cutting out letters and putting them in the correct order. We talked about consonant, vowel, consonant words (CVC): Your child learned that the vowel will be in the middle of the word. Take a look at our class working hard!
